    Yes, it comes from word шуба. But here, it sounds like "a little fur coat".

    Not at all. The "-к-" suffix in this case means endearment.
    Most diminutive suffixes can also express endearment (depending on context).

    Not necessary. If I understand endearment properly.

    For example, from police protocol:

    "На убитой надета норковая шубка".

    Can you say that there is endearment here?

    You will never find шубка in police protocol.

    You can find a lot interesting words in police protocol. And "норковая шубка" из quite common phrase.

    "На полу в комнате лежал труп, рядом была найдена жена трупа и его дети."
